      Comment
  • The sheriff's office has received reports of frauds.
    Citizens have reported receiving telephone calls and emails from unknown sources claiming to represent departments of the federal government.
    The emails/calls claim that the citizen has won a foreign lottery and in order to claim their winnings citizens are asked to send a $1,500 processing fee. Of course, the emails/calls are fraudulent.
    So far, the sheriff's office has not received word of any citizen who has paid the $1,500 processing fee.
